Anchor Health Properties Breaks Ground for Jefferson Regional Specialty Hospital, an 85,000 Square Foot Multi-Specialty Inpatient Rehabilitation and Behavioral Health Hospital
Anchor recently marked the commencement of a 76 bed, 85,000 square foot inpatient rehabilitation and behavioral health hospital, to be known as Jefferson Regional Specialty Hospital, with a groundbreaking ceremony.
Anchor is serving as development manager on this significant project. Lifepoint Rehabilitation and Lifepoint Behavioral Health, which are business units of Lifepoint Health, will operate the facility in partnership with Jefferson Regional.
“We are honored to partner with Lifepoint and Jefferson Regional in the development of this prominent, multi-specialty inpatient hospital,” shared Richard Paddock, Senior Vice President, Development & Partner with Anchor. “This synergistic facility will serve the community well by increasing accessibility and convenience to the area’s residents. Anchor’s development projects are guided by our purpose to pursue better healthcare through real estate solutions, and we are proud to be part of this joint venture’s mission to deliver an industry leading patient experience.”
The facility will be located at 1600 West Holland Avenue in White Hall, Arkansas and will offer 40 beds dedicated to inpatient rehabilitation services for adults who have experienced a loss of function or disability due to stroke, brain injury, spinal code injury, neurological disorders, orthopaedic surgery and other conditions. Featuring all private rooms, the rehabilitation section of the hospital will provide intense, interdisciplinary rehabilitation therapies and medical care to improve patients’ functional independence and help them return home.
Additionally, the hospital’s distinct behavioral unit will offer 36 beds focused on the continuum of inpatient and outpatient behavioral health services for adults and seniors, including crisis stabilization for acute mental health and substance use disorders; detoxification from alcohol and drugs; and treatment for anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder and many other behavioral health illnesses.
Slated for completion in December 2023, Earl Swennson Associates, a top healthcare design firm, is serving as the project’s architect and Brasfield & Gorrie, a nationally ranked healthcare construction provider, is serving as the project’s general contractor.
